Rebound/insult to injury/Strange Dream

Updated on July 18, 2012

Rebound/insult to injury/Strange Dream

Insult to injury

Don’t say you warned me

That’s a memory

Don’t tell me you’re lonely

I heard my phone rang but it didn’t ring

I gave you everything

I bought you a wedding ring

Now I move on to better things

I thought you would call but you didn’t call

Emotions pent like a centerfold

Being lonely is miserable

I only distract myself

Never thought I'd be by myself

You always astound

When we meet I rebound

You’re the one if you cook for me

I’m an eye doctor

I love how you look for me

Run a bubble bath

And get a book for me

You got back what she took from me

A transient I wander over desolate planes

Forever to remain in the place I was slain

An alien on foreign terrain inhales toxic air

A specter drenched in poisonous rain

My skin stained a stale blue pastel

I wait beneath heaven’s gates

Above the fires of hell

Streets paved with betrayal

Skeletons of ancient nations

Foreshadow fate

She said she should wait

Often professing

Love and hate

At the slightest opportunity

It was gone

I wake from a fond dream

In a strange bed

Unless you are next to me

I go back to sleep
